Beaumont home red-tagged by the city
If you take a ride down Major Drive in west Beaumont a home may catch your eye.
But this home isn't for sale. It's about to come down.
The city red tagged the house on Major near Phelan more than a year ago. That means it's a public safety hazard and neighbors are wondering why it's still standing.
The city's community development director says there's a plan in place to deal with dangerous buildings. Chris Boone told us it's a long process to either fix a red-tagged home or demolish it.
Boone says a home owner has up to 150 days to repair a home and can appeal for more time.
If they don't repair the home contractors bid to demolish it.
The city red-tagged this home in June of last year. When the new budget kicks in October 1st the brick ranch style house will be the first in this section of Beaumont to come down.
